  • Preheat the oven to 200°C (180°C fan, gas mark 6)
  • Line six tartlet tins with the pastry and trim off any excess, overhanging the sides of the tins. 
  • Use baking paper to line the inside of each tart and fill with baking beans to blind bake your pastry. Bake in the oven for 12-15 minutes.
  • Remove the baking paper and beans and bake for a further 10 minutes, until the pastry cases are dry, crisp and golden in colour.
  • Leave the tarts to cool whilst you make the ganache.
  • Pour the cream into the saucepan and heat on a medium heat (85C), do not boil. Add the two teabags and leave to simmer for a few minutes to steep. 
  • Remove the teabags and add the chocolate, leaving it to melt and incorporate with the cream. You may to heat a little bit to help the process. 
  • Stir the ganache with a spatula or wooden spoon, it might at first look spotty but continue to stir until it comes together.
  • Spoon the ganache into each cooled tartlet case and leave to set before serving.
  • For an extra finishing touch, create chocolate crowns using a specialised mould and then once set, decorate with edible gold spray.
